About Trade Commissions

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 10, 2012, 3:50 PM

Hey all, just writing this to inform my stance on accepting trades:

I treat trades as commissions, meaning that I have to receive something in equal value. As much as I would like to trade with everyone, I just can't. Don't feel humiliated or down if you come to me and I won't do a trade with you. It's nothing against you personally.

Also it has to do a lot with time and stuff too. As if I would really would like to trade with you if you approach me about it, I may be too busy with regular work and other stuff to keep up with it and I will have to hit you back when it's a more appropriate time to do so. It's all chance when it comes down to that.

Just a lil' notice about that.

Thanks for posting this up- I think a lot of artists have similar thoughts, but it's hard to put them into words. You phrased it pretty much perfectly.

I actually agree, both the journal and this comment :thumbsup:

You sometimes definitely want something in return if you worked hard for your half... It's only fair

You are way too skilled for me to even consider asking you. It would definitely be an honor and be AWESOME, but I'll be much too afraid of being rejected by an artist I admire. Aha.

A trade with you would be cool, But can't draw anthro... ;P
anyways, If you're ever interested hit me up.
I work really slowly tho, so that might be a problem :P
